Editors' Review

This application stays one step ahead of the game, offering search results on topics before you even ask, although its offline clairvoyance act didn't work as well. Watson's organized interface automatically displays search results based on the content of the current page you're on.

Its guided setup lets you determine which sites the program searches, and you can add multiple URLs. As you surf, Watson quickly scans your resource list and presents the top search results matching the text on the current page. You can dock the results window on any side of your screen. A space-saving toolbar appears on Internet Explorer and Firefox browsers to search and focus on specific text when you've got the docked window hidden.

Watson wasn't as effective with its offline tools. It's supposed to offer information based on your typed text in Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and Outlook, but it didn't return any results when we tried it. At times, Watson informed us that it needed more direction and suggested we highlight a term and hit Refresh. Even with this miss, this freebie is a welcome resource for regular search hounds.
